1944 also made himself the commander in chief, like Adolf Hitler did.

This essay lists the national leaders of the countries which participated in World War 2.

When he realized that Japan was going to lose the war he resigned.

So in addition to ordinary artillery, the German military was aided by a very large number of Stuka dive bombers which could quickly and efficiently destroy the enemy obstacles in the tanks path (artillery units, fortifications, infantry concentrations, bridges, convoys, etc).
Paratroopers were another type of air support, which could be used were key targets had to be quickly captured, not destroyed.

Some of these leaders were clearly the aggressors, while others led the war against aggression.

The Polish army's main mobile force remained the obsolete Cavalry.

Guderian himself was rapidly promoted to be the commander of one of the new "Panzer" (armor) divisions, in 1938 he became the commander of the 1st German Panzer Corps, and later that year he became the "Chief of mobile forces", with direct access to Hitler.

Some leaders succeeded, while others failed to stand against stronger powers.

In the face of this, I became convinced, and am prepared to reinforce this with an oath that the "final solution" of Jewry (in so far as this concerned wartime Poland under German control, and from my vantage point of view), emanated from official Jewish and German departments (German, "Stellen").

Other armies, like in France and Poland, remained conservatively stuck in the previous war.

Hitler sent commandos to rescue his friend from captivity.

Shotgun slugs are admittedly a somewhat difficult comparison due to the lack of spin stabilisation, but at least a point blank range they should probably also be decidedly more lethal than an intermediate calibre.

The elements of Blitzkrieg directly obey all the principles of war.

In Ballad, probably the Schwarzritter C6 since it's the closest thing to an SKS.

Also, I just noticed that the intermediate 7.92x33 cartridge is only one or two points weaker than several full-sized rifle calibers, while being markedly stronger than shotgun blasts.

Winston Churchill kept warning of the Nazi danger in pre-war years.

At this time the latest version is v1.9.9:

Here's Ballad of the Laser Whales' latest version:

Here's a wiki detailing SoS's fantasy setting, getting filled up bit by bit as Jimmy reveals more details:

There's also a roll20 room where new players are encouraged to try the rules, test new rules, and find game breaking issues:
The room might be empty, but the people who teach the game still browse the thread frequently.

That's what made it so successful.

Its combat system is more modern, based in the early 20th century, but can probably handle combat up to the present day.

Here's a .rar archive with the newest version of the rules as well as all related current working documents.

The German tank units were highly trained.

Its combat system is fast and it can be used for both fantasy and historical/mundane settings.

Call of the Void is a pulpy sci-fi tabletop RPG about fighting space-nazis and hunting giant whales with harpoons made out of the moon.

The German tanks were the first really efficient battle tanks.

Meanwhile, a .303 can happily go out to ~500 yards while still carrying as much energy as the slug has at 100 yards, and can also easily be zeroed up to that distance or beyond.
